Fetal Medicine Service Change – IN PROGRESS

Fetal medicine is a service for pregnant women provided by highly skilled, specialist doctors that offer diagnosis and treatment of complications which may arise in unborn babies

SaTH provides a Level 2 Fetal Medicine Service. Babies identified with potentially more significant complications are already referred to a Level 3 unit

To date, SaTH has been fortunate enough to have had three Obstetricians who specialise in fetal medicine. Through a combination of recent retirements and unavailability, from the end of July 2023, we will not be able to provide this service until we are able to recruit to fill these posts

There is a national shortage of Doctors who specialise in fetal medicine, we are however committed to try to fully restore the service and on this basis we have been working to develop an attractive recruitment plan in an effort to fill our vacancies
